Sam: I am absolutely for greater cooperation with Israel. I also think the Israelis are very smart. Israel?s achievements in science and technology are something every including its worst critics should learn from and appreciate ? India definitely should. But I do not agree with your observation on the Indian economy. Pl. do not forget that we have what will soon be the largest population in the world. From a basket case we have managed to be amongst those that count. I am not sure about a superpower status but I am sure we are doing quite a bit to improve the condition and status of the masses. We have a thriving democracy i.e. we cannot absolutely ignore the opinion of the 150 million muslims ? but I hope that they realize and think as Indians first that this alliance with US and Israel is a win-win situation. As far as a comment from some one about the evil of castism - I would like to point out that it is not state sanctioned and even commenting on a persons cast came get one arrested.
